"Despite student perceptions that research in medical school is an essential ingredient for a successful application to residency, our findings indicate that research experience ranks low among selection criteria when all specialties are grouped together. The NRMP also found that research experience in medical school did not differ significantly among U.S. seniors who matched in their specialties of choice and those who did not.1 This was consistent across competitive and noncompetitive specialties. It should be noted, however, that in our survey, program directors in particularly competitive specialties (radiation oncology, plastic surgery, neurosurgery, and dermatology) ranked research experience highly (Table 3). It may be that when all other selection criteria are outstanding among applicants to a particular specialty, research experience or research publications may help discriminate candidates."

What type of USCE and LORs do you have?

Research is definitely not a requirement for IMGs to match into university based IM programs. I interviewed at four university programs myself this past season. I have no research experience. The closest thing to it would be a poster presentation at a national conference here in the States. I wouldn't quite call a poster presentation research though.
